The hottest basketball cards right now include Ja Morant 2019 Chronicles (with Young Dolph), Anthony Edwards 2020 Prizm #258, and Michael Jordan 1990 Fleer #26 PSA 9. This is based on the number of sales according to Market Movers data from the last 7 days.

We are still months away from the NBA season, and that’s obvious in the volume of card sales over the last 7 days. In fact, when you compare to the hottest football cards, the total number of basketball cards sold among the top 10 hottest, 296, fall well short (693 for football).
It’s also obvious that we aren’t yet in basketball season because I don’t think a 1990 Fleer Michael Jordan smells the top of the list when facing the competition of current NBA activity.
In any event, here is the entire list of hot basketball cards based on sales volume over the last 7 days:
What else stands out among the other cards on the list?
Any Victor Wembanyama rookie card will be one to watch, and it’s worth nothing that his entry on the list as the 4th highest is his Topps Now card as a PSA 10, selling 29 times over the last 7 days (for $65.47 on average). This is ahead of Wembanyama’s Bowman’s Best University #51 Refractor (Raw; 26 sales).
Other things to note—Dennis Rodman’s raw Fleer rookie is #11 on the list, and has increased in value from $18.83 to $24.79. Chet Holmgren is probably the most unproven player within the top 20 cards, with his silver Prizm rookie selling 18 times for around $44.68. Austin Reaves is up there too, with his Prizm rookie selling 19 times for around $5 on average.
Other young games round out the bottom of the list, and if there are any expected to pick up in volume when the seasons gets closer to kicking off, it’s these:
- Pablo Banchero Prizm #249 Silver
- Jaden Ivey Prizm #256 Silver
- Shaedon Sharpe Prizm #250 Silver
- Jalen Green Prizm #306
